4 years ago, life looked quite a bit different for us than it does now. Job and location were different, sure. But the biggest difference was that Stephanie and I were just dating.
In fact, this was just about the time of year we got engaged.
It's hard to wrap my brain around a time where I lived on my own, spent weekends on my own, and didn't go crazy. These days, Stephanie goes away for a weekend and I'm utterly hopeless!
Life's definitely changed for the better in many ways over the last 4 years, but I don't think any way has improved more than our relationship. Life ain't always peachy, but sharing it with Stephanie is the biggest blessing in my life.
I know things have changed for her too.
Over the last 4 years, I've had a front row seat to a beautiful experience, seeing Stephanie grow in so many areas of her life.
She has been so caring to learn the things that matter to me—big or small, silly or serious, and spend time learning to do them with grace and excellence.
From managing our household and making sure we always have clean underwear and a delicious dinner—never thought I'd talk about underwear in a blog post—to learning how to successfully run a growing business on the fly and crush it, she makes me so proud to have her as my wife.
In case you didn't know, today is her birthday! Would you join me in wishing her the happiest of birthdays? She deserves all the love in the world and I hope you'll make sure she feels loved today.
Stephanie, I'm sooooo glad your mine! Happy birthday, my dear!
